John- I didn't know you were interested in Ackers. I have two I am trying to trace, Jacob and George Acker, who were the youngest children of Joh. Heinrich Acker (aka Henry Acker), are were born circa 1778 and 1783 in Shenandoah Co., VA. Since their father and mother died before they were grown, they were place under the guardianship of John Wehrly (various spellings), husband of their older sister, Magdalena Acker. She died in Preble Co., OH in 1850 andis buried at the Petry-Wehrly Cemetery there. Her husband, said to have died the same year, has no known grave,but of course it may have disappeared within the same cemetery.
There are a few Aker (Acre, Acker) listings in census and other recpords there, and more in Fairfield Co., OH. Do you know anything about any of this? -Lew Ellingham (firstname.lastname@example.org)
